Rookie (30 December 1959 / Bo'ness Scotland)

Ego = More Than I


Your arrogance is as vast as the sky,
it is your arrogance that allows you to lie.
Your narcissistic insensitivity is as immense as a dry desert,
it is your insensitivity that allows you to humiliate and hurt!

Your empty empathy is as tiny as a locust's larvae,
it is your lack empathy that means you never say sorry.
Your ego is as wide as the blackest barn door,
it is your errant ego that allows you to whore.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
